No band has ever picked up a Pavement record and said, " Hey, we can do that too," with the success the Archers do here. Web in Front is the best opening track to a band's career ever.
Archers Of Loaf debut provides us with a nice collection of indie rock songs with elements of emo and noise into the mix for great album. It is tight for the track length and provides a nice variety which keeps the listener engage and is a nice heavier side to the indie rock scene of the early 90's

I'm a big fan of this album. Icky Mettle provides the listener with thirteen songs of concentrated indie rock. I find this album to be completely listenable through and through. Mandatory listening for alternative and indie fans.
